Turn over the bucket day

15 posts in this topic

Today would be a fantastic day to be sitting on the ol' bucket pulling in the pannies, however I am stuck at work.

Anyone make it out on this beautiful day of warm weather and falling pressure?

I was able to get out for about 1/2 hour.

Sled, hand auger, scoop, rod with jig and a dozen waxies...no flasher because I knew where they would be. Also had my AA bibs and Sorels stashed in my car and used my lunch hour to fish a nearby lake.

Caught half a dozen perch, couple were kind of fatties. Are they full of eggs already? They seemed out of proportion to the length.

I crammed a sandwich into my mouth on the way back to the office. It was great!

Went out on Clearwater Lake near Nokay/Deerwood.

Caught my limit of crappies in a couple hours.

Was a mid-morning bite. They quit biting after 11:30am.

I wish it would've been a little warmer in the morning.

Was kinda chilly fishing on the ice. Should have brought the portable...

I was nursing a cold all day. I might make it out tomarrow with a hand full of dayquil and cough drops.

Got out with the kids today (6 4 and 3 yrs old) and had a blast. Went home with a nice bunch of crappies. Didn't even have to set up the shack until the sun set.

Went to the Croix out of Bayport and caught 7 craps (4 Keepers) 3 rock bass 1 perch and a nasty mud puppy. It was kinda windy, but tolerable for sure.

It was Seniors day out on the lake I was at. Sun was warm but the wind was cold. Met several retired fellas out enjoying the day.

I reversed what I normally do and sat outside in my t-shirt in the sun and had my rattle reels down in the fish house with the window open to hear them. Talk about enjoyable!!

    • Correct.  Stinkhorns.
    • Sorry, HW signed the agreement then handed it over to Billy C.  So, you're right, clearly the democrats fault.
    • Who signed the NAFTA treaty? The House of Representatives approved NAFTA, by a vote of 234 to 200 on November 17, 1993, and the Senate voted 60 to 38 for approval on November 20. It was signed into law by President Clinton on December 8, 1993, and took effect on January 1, 1994.   Derp.....
    • I say we go to Mars and make the Martians pay for it.
    • No idea what you're talking about, but I'll assume it's complimentary.
    • Probably a good call since Trump's assertion that Billy C. signed NAFTA into law is false.
    • Any one have one of the newer automatic King Quest Satellites? I just bought a new Ice Castle, and my old own had the Winegard crank up style dish which I had no problem with. They are trying to tell me to buy a new  king portable one, but I am not sure it is worth the extra money. I only know of one person with the newer one, and he said he liked the older crank up one better. He said he was always losing signal with automatic one. Any feed back would be great.. Thanks
    • Hey all, I recently upgraded from my homemade wheelhouse to a new hydraulic ice castle and had a few questions I forgot to ask at the dealer. 1. For the hydraulic frame, does anyone bring extra hydraulic fluid with? Wouldn't imagine to need it unless you had a leak but I don't know much about hydraulics. Ever need to change out the fluids? 2. Ladders. After buying and trying to get on the top bunk I noticed it is extremely hard to climb up there (especially after a few beers) are they suppose to come with a ladder? was going to call the dealer and try and make them throw one in. I made a temporary ladder which works fine but wondering what other people have done. 3. DNR Registration numbers. My previous house I had some decals made up and looked real nice. However that had smooth siding. Anyone have any advice on where to put numbers that look good? Suppose I could just be extra careful in applying to the ribbed siding so they get applied smooth with the grooves but wondering where everyone else puts theirs. Don't really want to do the old white square boat numbers on there. 4. Microwaves. Anyone have any recommendations on a good microwave to install? I have a lot of empty space above the hydraulics near the kitchen I think a microwave would be perfect, and there is already an outlet there for charging the hydraulic system battery - just wondering if anyone had a good one for travel/low power draw. 5. Any recommendations on generators? Was going to go buy a new Honda 2000 have heard good things about them and always been a Honda fan. that should run a small microwave I'm thinking? My Honda 1000 bit the dust last year - mainly because of my own mistake haha 6. Sound system. Sounds okay in there but it isn't the upgraded premium speakers. Wondering if anyone had some new speakers they liked and possibly a new deck. 7. Rod holders. Wanted to throw some fishing pole holders on the wall in the bathroom. Was having a hard time finding any I liked at the stores or online. Anyone have something that worked well for them, and didn't fall out during transit? I had one last year I had mounted under a cabinet and of course the first weekend with my new crappie pole fell off and broke!   Figured I'd see if anyone had any advice on what worked well for them. Thanks in advance!!
